I've been looking at a few agile books this evening and came across your other book, Learning Agile: Understanding Scrum, XP, Lean, and Kanban. I was wondering if you'd mind outlining some of the differences between the two, including style and tone of writing, as I'm a fan of this series of books too (if you can call them that? O'Reilly's animals...), but I've found a couple of them quite dry. On the other hand, while I like HeadFirst the reverse can sometimes be true, slightly more HeadFirst Design Patterns than HeadFirst Java in terms of 'loudness' (I love my OCA/OCP7 certification book - I'm sorry BB and KS).
"Learning Agile " was another great book from the team of Stellman and Greene. I had read their Head First PMP book
when I was studying for the PMP exam, This book is just as helpful. It is not just another boring primer like
so many other methodology books.
They inject a lot of enthusiasm into their writing and I like how they show a balanced view of each topic, exploring
both the pros and cons using examples that we can all relate to.This keeps it very real and very applicable to real-world
situations. This is a great 'hands-on' book for all organizations either starting to adopt Agile or in need of fine-tuning and
improving their existing methodologies.
I hope "HeadFirst Agile "would turn out to be another great book.
